Hello ladies

I would like to start a thread/bus/merry-go-round to meet, get support and share with ladies in the same boat as me:

TTC baby no 1!

Will you join me and see it through to the BFP?!

A bit about me - I'm 29, DP is 35. This will be our first child.

I'm in, I'm 27, DH is 33. We got married a year ago and where planing on waiting but my doctor pretty much told me that if I wanted kids I needed to get pregnant ASAP.

Thanks VIkki, that helps a lot smile I've just ordered some daily OPKs from eBay for next month. Has anyone else found these cheaper ones to work as well as the leading brands? According to the listing they're used by NHS and they're about 4 quid for 20 tests. I'm feeling brave and looking forward to learning new things about my cycle too.

Aww it's a bit exciting isn't it. We've only recently decided that we want to TTC for first time. Sending good luck vibes smile

Hi Ladies, I hope you don't mind me joining you! I'm 30 (tomorrow!) and my husband is 32 - we've been married for 18 months.
We went on holiday with friends to celebrate my birthday and started TTC as soon as we got back (on Sat).
Some of the calculators say I would have been ovulating then and some say I would have been too late so I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I know thinking I'll conceive first time is silly even if I was ovulating! Still I can't help symptom spotting even though it's only been four days! this morning I cleaned my teeth and they really bled which never happens to me.
This could make me crazy I think! smile

Hi Cupcake, welcome and Happy Birthday for tomorrow! I went mad symptom spotting last month when we first started trying, i've learnt pill withdrawal feels a lot like early pregnancy! This month I'm really trying to rein it in and just wait until i'm throwing up or something! I did 5 tests last month! Lol! Madness! Good luck, you never know you could catch quite early...! smile

Thank you for the welcome and birthday wishes Em! I haven't been on the pill for about three years so I don't have that added confusion, you poor thing.
Sending good luck to you too!

Hi Ladies

Can I join? In my first month TTC, I'm 27 husband to be is 29, I am a HUGE control freak! And this is driving me crazy! Think my cycle is 50 days, which means I should ovulate next week although going by EWCM I think I ovulated 2 weeks ago, have been using OPKs which said negative then changed their minds and looked like a positive although could be evap line, currently taking Agnus Castus, folic acid, VitB and OH is taking zinc. As my cycle is completely unknown we've decided just to have sex every other day and hope for the best!

Hello Curly86, good luck to you hope you get BFP very soon, I'm similar in that I've no idea what my cycle is doing, stopped pill at the end of May after a long long time on it so lord knows when I'll 'straighten out' currently waiting for AF & hoping she doesn't arrive! Happy shagging! wink

Has anyone bought any sneaky baby goodies prematurely?

I caved yesterday. I was only supposed to be "researching"!

Nothing big. But felt naughty. So I came home and hid it from DH!

vicki2122 Tue 29-Oct-13 19:12:16

Hi me and dh have been trying to conceive for 2 years now. And so i missed a period by 5 days so i took 2 tests both negative but im getting all symptoms so i need some advice. hmm

hello Ladies..
I can I join?

I'm 28 and my husband is 40. We had our test and all came back normal. We have been taking prenatal pills and his taking zinc and all the other vitamins. It's more than a year now and we still have got any positive results. I have not used any contraception before and I have read almost all the link about ttc online.. it really makes me feel down and anxious to why im not pregnant yet...

Is there anyone who has the same situation?
